from obituary -
The death of uncle Isaac Davis, as he was familiarly called, deserves more than a passing notice. He was born in Surry County, North Carolina, in the year 1796, and had passed his four score and fifth year. Leaving his native state in 1815, he came to Ohio and settled in Butler Twp., Montgomery County. At the age of 20, married Miss Mary Johnson, and remained there until 1832, when he removed wtih his wife and five children to the new state of Indiana. He settled there in Morgan County on a farm and remained there until 1847. He again removed to the then young state of Iowa - and settled near Richland, when he again removed to Pleasant Plain, in Jefferson County, but remained there only a year, when he returned to this place where he lived until his death.
Here his companion through the cares and vicisitudes of the pioneer life he delighted to lead, died in 1863, leaving him alone; as all his children were married. He again married Mrs. Hester Tansey, and lived happily until her death just a month to the hour prior to his own. He was a member of the Friends Church, and had been for many years. Consistant in all his ways, promptness and punctuality were his prinicipal characteristics. A staunch friend and devoted husband and father. He is buried in the Richland Friends Cemetery, Richland, Keokuk Co., IA.
